assembly line mass drone production

you walk around anywhere, in the ttc, in the malls, in stores, and you see the same goddamn thing

i’m talking about those girls, all of them who look the exact same, you can tell they’re in high school — perhaps even junior high — and they might as well have come off an assembly line

first the hair, the shiny hair that looks like it’s been ironed down to the skull
then the same stupid arrogant glare that each one of them has with the make-up over-applied to the eyes
the skimpy tops covered by some odd wind-breaker type clothing
or those fleece sweaters or hoodies from gap
and the same types of jackets, either a white columbia jacket — always worn the same way, or a white tight bubble jacket but with a hood that is lined with fur
the same small stocky black purses (or colours that match the jacket or other clothing items)
and the tight jeans that bell out slightly (not too much) near the bottom

and the number one thing, the singular thing that unites them all is the goddamn shoes
the same goddamn shoes
either the air force ones or stupid look-alikes
with the tongues out, over the tight jeans
and the laces loose or undone
and if there’s a velcro strap which there often is it’s undone and off to the side
and the goddamn shoes are always white, or some other pretty ass colour to match perhaps the purse or the jacket or some other crap

what the hell is going on there

it’s pissing me off

it’s as if they all go to some dumbass factory and step into a machine where they select from a pre-screened selection of colours and come out all looking the goddamn same with minor differences in colour

bloody hell

and let’s not forget the guys, all the guys who act as if they’re tough and crap with their horrendously long shirts and their pants hanging around well below their asses restricting their movements and forcing them to walk with a side-to-side shift as if they’re goddamn penguins, and the same baseball hat over bandana look — very original
and the goddamn air force ones, the same god damned air force ones and lookalikes worn the same goddamn way as the girls, with the tongue out, the laces loose or undone and the velcro strap off to the side
hey but some of them do get original what with the rolling up one of their pant legs for some goddamn inexplicable reason

it’s grand

like a mass production of non-thinking drones this!

    Yeah you are pretty original yourself, jackass. Do you know what annoys the shit out of me??? People that speak on a subject that they know nothing about nor do they understand. Why is it Hating man’s favorite pastime? I wish I never went to this site. It did nothing but piss me the fuck off. Those very same people that you passed by were probably thinking how stupid you looked. Prejudge of any kind is unacceptable and will be dealt with…

    i think the word you’re looking for is prejudice

    your point is certainly valid, but if you actually read my post, i’ve only criticized the style of dress — not the characters of those who wear the clothes

    except for “the guys who act as if they’re tough and crap” — speaking of whom, the guys who act as if they’re tough and crap really do piss me off

    still, not making any presumptions about their characters, they could be marvelous people — the fact that they act tough and crap via the way they dress is what pisses me off

    and you need to take the post within its political context — “mass production of non-thinking drones” — i call it high school
